"Just changed Boone’s diaper (thank you Congressman C)," Cunningham, who won a seat in the House of Representatives earlier this month, tweeted. 

Trump on Sunday nicknamed himself "President T" in an early-morning tweet in which he lauded his work to reduce oil prices.  

“So great that oil prices are falling (thank you President T),” the president wrote. “Add that, which is like a big Tax Cut, to our other good Economic news. Inflation down (are you listening Fed)!”

The message came only days after he praised Saudi Arabia for the falling price of oil, before urging that the prices "go lower!"

Trump's relationship with Saudi Arabia has received heightened scrutiny in recent days. He said last week that the U.S. would seek to maintain a "steadfast" alliance with the kingdom despite its role in the killing of journalist and U.S. resident Jamal Khashoggi. 

Trump also refused to blame Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the killing, even as reports emerged that the CIA has concluded that bin Salman likely ordered the assassination. 

Khashoggi was killed after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2. 

Cunningham won his bid to represent South Carolina's 1st Congressional District earlier this month. He beat Republican state Rep. Katie Arrington to earn the seat that was left vacant after GOP Rep. Mark Sanford lost his primary.
